Mino Raiola: ‘France does not like heroes’

Pogba, 25, remains one of the most slated players in football as the desire to hurt astounds his agent Mino Raiola

Raiola told RMC Sport: “I think France does not like heroes. There is a lot of envy, jealousy. These players really represent the country, their team, in a perfect way. I do not see why we have to criticise them.”

He adds: “For Paul in particular, because everyone wants to criticise him. He is a boy who always stays positive, who works hard. He has nothing to prove. He must do his best, help his team. He has to do what the coach wants. On the field, but also off it, because he’s a perfect ambassador.”
